Well, I've had water-wetter in my '89 100Q for the summer, along
with the "official" autobahn antifreeze. I never noticed any oily
balls, but I didn't look a whole lot. There aren't any now, so I
can't say for sure if they're gone, or haven't formed yet.
I agree wholeheardtedly that there is no real drop in temperature.
I put the stuff in since my old, tired radiator is getting a little
too hot for my taste. No change. Still gets too hot. Time for a new
radiator, I guess.

At least your money.
